During an appearance on WINCLY, Rikishi discussed giving Vince McMahon a stinkface and what Vince said to him prior to the angle. Here’s what he had to say:
It was great because I got paid for it [laughs]. Vince McMahon is a wonderful dude and I don’t have nothing bad to say about the man. He’s set up his platform for wrestlers in the past, present and future and he’s taken care of a lot of families. For us to be a part of his family, I’m talking about all the way to his father. My family has been there for 75+ years so it’s a family thing to be a part of the WWE. So, I wanna thank Vince McMahon for continuing to put out entertainment for fans around the world.
Before we went out there he goes, ‘Hey. I hope you washed your ass today.’ I said just because it’s called Stinkface doesn’t mean my ass stinks … I do have three different thongs. I have the thong I never take out the sandwich bag. I have the mediocre thong that I air out. Then I have the new thongs. So for those you think I don’t like, which thong do you think they get? So I wanted to give Vince McMahon the new thong. Otherwise I probably would have gotten fired the next day.
